College Level Examination Program

About    |  Challenge Exams  |  CLEP Exams  |  Compass TestLasergrade

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) consists of a series of examinations that test an individual’s college level knowledge gained through course work, independent study, cultural pursuits, travel, special interests, military service schools and professional development. CLEP General and Subject examinations are accepted for credit by more than 2,900 colleges and universities. Currently, there are 34 test titles available. For a listing of all the test titles available, please visit http://www.collegeboard.com/clep/.

The American Council on Education (ACE) recommends the minimum score for awarding credit but each institution determines its acceptable score and the amount of credit granted for each examination. Before taking any CLEP exam, candidates should first check with an adviser or guidance counselor at the educational institution of their choice to determine the exact score required and the amount of credit granted for each test. Each CLEP candidate is responsible for paying all applicable fees before taking a CLEP test.

Testers must pay a $15 proctor fee at the Student Accounts Office to take CLEP exams. Testers also must purchase the exam at www.collegeboard.org and bring the admissions ticket they are emailed.
